Feel like your hashtags are #boring and #irrelevant? One of the simplest ways to discover new hashtags for your content is by looking into the tags that you or your peers/competition are already using and letting Instagram show you additional hashtags that would work with your content.
Steps for finding relevant hashtags:
- Open the Instagram app and go to any post (one of your own or someone else’s).
- Select a hashtag (it will be preceded by the hash sign (#) and the text will be blue), and click on it.
- This will take you to a landing page for the hashtag.
- If the hashtag is considered “relevant” (or popular) Instagram will automatically display related hashtags at the top of the page, that you can swipe through left and right. (if a hashtag does not have a minimum amount of content tagged under it, this section will not appear.)
